INTERVIEW

ANTONIO BARRETO by Beto Biscaia

M

iami has been my home since 1999. Born and raised in Sao Paulo, I ended up here on what was supposed to be a three-year project, and have been here ever since. I am a serial entrepreneur, with a passion for the media and entertainment business. It all started 30 years ago, when a couple of clueless and penniless friends decided to launch the first cable tv in Brazil. We knew we were on to something, and

sure enough, less than two years later we had sold the business. From then on, it has been a great ride, doing something I love and consumers die for, and always staying ahead of the curve. Five years ago, I launched the first video streaming service in Latin America, and then sold it to one of the largest telcos in the world. And just last year, again with a group of friends, we launched Miami’s first pro soccer team: The Miami FC!

TALK Miami 12


INTERVIEW

Why Miami? Back in the 90’s, Miami was the capital of Latin America. To do business in the region, you had to be here. Luckily, Miami evolved and became one of the sexiest cities in the planet. The world comes to Miami to have fun, to look for a place to live, and to do business. The opportunities to grow in our city are endless. We are in the right place at the right time. So how is your life like? I am on the road more than half of my time. American Airlines is my lifeline… When in Miami I retreat to my condo. Key Biscayne is the perfect place to live. You are in a very secluded resort, just 15 minutes from downtown and any other great spot. When here, I work from home, which is a true privilege. I love sports, so I run, swim and bike during the week. On weekends I play golf and sail my cat. All without having to leave Key Biscayne! What is your next project? This is just happening and I am very excited to share with Talk. We are bringing to Miami the most impressive interior design event of the Americas: Casa Cor. An interior design, architecture and landscaping show-house that will host some of the most recognized professionals in Miami and the Americas, showing their best and most recent work. A true gift for Miami’s most sophisticated residents. The inaugural edition will happen in April of 2017. It will be very impressive! Your favorite spots in Miami? Restaurants: Zuma, Mandolin, Cecconi Beach: Key Biscayne – maybe not the hottest or most beautiful, but it is within walking distance, where friends are, and it feels like you are in a faraway Caribbean resort Bar: Rooftop at the 1 Hotel Car: Porsche 911 Cabrio – the perfect car for Miami Favorite Hotspots: Provence, London, Seattle, Tokyo

6 BEAUTY TIPS FOR THE SUMMER BRIDES SUMMER IS FINALLY HERE AND ALL BRIDES-TO-BE KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS: IT’S TIME TO WORK ON BRIDAL BEAUTY PLANS.

. Though it may seem too soon, it’s never early to boost your health and beauty from the inside out. Start with the easiest and most affordable way to achieve glowing wedding day skin with everyone’s best friend: WATER! If you have trouble reaching the recommended three to four liters per day, invest in a stylish water bottle to help keep you on track. S’well bottles are composed of non-leaching and non-toxic 18/8 stainless steel and keep your water cool for up to 24 hours. They also come in a variety of colors and prints.

2

. Treat your hands to some serious loving care. After all, they’re also going to be the center of attention on your wedding day thanks to a certain little sparkly accessory. Grab an at-home spa treatment that’s formulated to rescue dry skin and strengthen nails at the same time. Kocostar’s Dry Hands Rescue Treatment will perfectly work. Finish your fingers with the right shade from Essie’s 2016 bridal collection.

. When it comes to your wedding day hair, things can get a little risky! Choose a style that will keep your hair off of your neck and shoulders so that you can remain cool. There’s no better way to look summer bridal chic than with an elegant updo paired with a great hair accessory. For something sparkly, the Crystal Cascade Comb. If you’re looking for something more versatile, the Crystallized Vine Hairpiece is made for you.

4

. As the big day approaches, it’s time to master your skin routine. Go ahead and give yourself one last facial treatment 3-4 weeks in advance, so your skin has time to settle. After that, focus on gentle cleansing techniques and deep hydration to maintain a healthy glow. Make sure you’re removing your makeup every night and getting plenty of sleep. After all, an extra rest is fundamental.

TALK Miami 15

5

. For summer and makeup, remember: less is more. If you’re going to be taking outdoor pictures during the early afternoon hours, a face covered in too much foundation and powder can be quite uncomfortable. Start with a tinted moisturizer, then layer on some Brush On Block Mineral Sunscreen for a sheer look that both perfects and protects. Add a bit of bronzer, a peachy-nude cream blush, and a simple lip balm or light pink lipstick and you’re guaranteed to look flawless all day.

6 S

. Things happen, so set an emergency kit with everything you might need during the preparations. We suggest some breath mints, tissues, baby powder, hairspray, deodorant, sewing supplies, etc. This Bridetastic Emergency Kit includes everything you need to feel safe in case of an emergency.

o, follow these helpful hints for a stress-free bridal beauty plan that’s sure to pay off. Once you’ve checked these tips off your list, all that’s left to do is relax and get excited for the big day!

At only 24, the Brazilian athlete has built a career that many dreams of, but just a few can really achieve. Besides being one of the best (and well-paid) soccer players in the world, Neymar is very active on social media and dedicated to social projects. e has already been chosen as the athlete with the best marketing actions in the world, surpassing fellows such as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. Due to his popularity, Neymar has signed contracts in different areas of marketing and is one of the most important faces of Brazilian advertisement.

ith all the talent and fame, the star is also an enthusiast of social actions. On December 23, 2014, Neymar and his family opened Instituto Projeto Neymar Jr. (INJR) a nongovernmental organization dedicated to underprivileged children and families . It’s a huge educational and sport-focused complex located in Jardim Glória, Praia Grande-SP, where the player spent part of his childhood. Know the project he institute has priorities such as the social commitment, the defense and consolidation of family values and aims to change the community life through knowledge and opportunities. To increase social insertion and active participation from the community, the NGO offers after-school activities -whether educational or sport ones- to children and families from the region.

Kids must be from 7 to 14 years old. The participation of a second family member is also mandatory.

The place offers sports courts, swimming pools, gym facilities, cinema, cafeteria, auditorium, library, a healthcare area and rooms for social assistance, computers and multimidia. The cost of the project was about 12 million dollars.

n times when lack of solidarity is the common rule, offering the chance for community organization and empowerment can be considered and heroic act. Through volunteer work and partnerships with communities, the spread of social actions is synonym of development because attitudes like that focus not only on the kids and their families, but also on an entire community, including employees, teachers, supporters, volunteers and sponsors. Acts of such excellence should and must be spread in order to change people’s live. In Praia Grande, Sao Paulo, in Brazil and in the world.

TALK Miami 24


COVER

We had a conversation with Neymar Jr: 1- How did you come up with the idea of Instituto Neymar Jr.? Doing something for families in Jardim Glória (neighborhood where Neymar spent his childhood) has always been a dream for my family. As my career developed, this dream could come true. We obviously didn’t think of something so big, but my parents have always wanted to build something there. 2- How long did it take from the project creation to the Institute opening day? From the dream to starting the activities I can’t say, it’s been a few years. But the construction started in 2013 and in 2015 we started offering activities for the local community. 3- Even living abroad, can you keep track of the changes and the evolution of the institute? My mom is the president of the institute and she always keeps me uptaded about the current actions and projects. Even though it’s hard because of professional appointments, I try to have an active role for ideas and projects and I have full trust in the people chosen to lead the project. Even when we are at the training ground, preparing for a match, I can keep track of the news on the website and all the other social media. Making my family’s dream come true is very thankful and watching how it helps families is wonderful. 4- How do you analyze the institute’s growth after one year and a half? As my father usually says, the institute is still a baby that needs a lot of care and some corrections. But the development comes as we’ve expected, I even think it has overcome our first expectations. But the transformation we’ve dreamed of is just beginning. 5- So far, what’s the institute’s biggest goal? So far I think the main goal was improving school attendance. In the beginning of our activities, attendance was 60%, now we were able to improve it to 80%, which means that more kids are going to school in order to participate in the institute’s activities. Another important thing is that some families could get a job because of the professionalizing courses we offer. We celebrate our goals, but we know the game is still on.

TALK Miami 25


COVER

6- How does family’s participation mainly help children’s development? I think the most important is that parents get involved and interested in their kids’s dreams, that they live the same reality. That’s what happened to me and my parents and that’s the experience we want to repeat at the institute. That when a child gets home, full of new experiences to share with his parents, they know the importance of that conversation in their lives... It’s a rescue of family’s importance. 7- Does the institute assist exclusively families from Praia Grande or it reaches other cities from the South seaside of Sao Paulo? To attend the institute, you must live in the neighborhoods nearby. 8- What are the requisites to attend the institute? The child must be from 7 to 14 years old, be enrolled in one of the schools near the institute and the family must do any activity over there. The institute is for the family, not just for the children. 9- Are there any evaluations to keep a child at the institute? The most important is school attendance. The success of this project depends on the kid’s attendance and performance at school. 10- Can a 7-year-old child continuously participate in the institute activities untile he becomes 14? Yes, he stays all these years with us. We have just started a night project to assist children over 14 and now they can stay a little longer with us.

11- Which are the highlights from the Institute’s infrastructure? I don’t think there’s a highlight! I’m biased to say this, but everthing there is really cool... But if I had to choose a favorite place, it would be the healthcare area. Our kids go through a lot of medical and physical evaluations because of the partnerships we have. 12- Talking about sports, is there any soccer groundwork for kids? Our intention is to raise citizens, not athletes. Instituto Projeto Neymar Jr is not a soccer school, you need to visit us to understand it. Soccer is just one of the several activities daily available for kids there. 13- Which other sports are priority at the institute? All sports are treated as priority at the institute. Besides soccer, kids can practice judo, volleyball, handball, basketball and swimming. 14- What are the institute’s plans for the future? Currently our plan is to make our activity solid. As I’ve mentioned before, the institute is still a baby. 15- Are there plans of opening new facilities in Brazil? Yes, after everything is working properly in Jardim Glória. But we still have a lot to do before talking about expansion.

16- How are you received by kids when you visit the institute? With a lot of love, just like any other sportsperson or celebrity who visits the institute. They love it. They ask a lot of questions, want to know everything and I think it’s really cool to answer to all of them. I guess it motivates them because I was just like every single kid who is there. They have as many opportunities as I did. 17- What’s the feeling of helping so many families at the same time? It’s amazing! I’m from the area, I used to live very close to where the institute is and back then it was hard to have access to sport and leisure. We created this institute to offer a little of something we didn’t have. 18- How can a company become a partner? First of all, I want to make clear that we are a non-profit institution, so any company that wants to become a partner must wish to help those kids in order to keep their dreams. To learn more about how to participate, contact us at the e-mail contato@institutonjr.org.br 19- Can any person contribute with donations? Yes, you can contribute with anything you want: donation of products and material, actions for the kids and even professionalizing courses. 20- What message would you give to the kids at the institute? That they keep fighting for their dreams, that they work hard and mainly that they have a lot of fun. Don’t forget school, it’s very important and it will make each of you a great citizen. We’ll meet on my next visit.

n 2014 the Brazilian businessman Alexandre Soares was invited to get acquainted with the social activities developed by Roger Federer Foundation in Africa. The trip of six days resulted in the book “África – Uma Visita Para Ser Lembrada” (“Africa – A Visit to Remember”), which translates through photojournalistic images the experiences lived by the Author. The book highlights in 207 pages, “live” photos through feelings and colors, which portray the impacting and touching reality of Zambia’s needy communities (an African country rich in natural resources, however, suffering due to the misery, malnutrition and lack of education scenario. It is estimated that 1/4 of the country’s population is illiterate) with interventions of the social activities of Roger Federer Foundation, which for more than ten years has invested and helped in projects to improve the quality of the children basic education, because it believes that a good education is crucial, as it is the foundation of the entire learning and that qualifying these children in a sustainable manner, they can become masters of their future.

“África – Uma Visita Para Ser Lembrada” (“Africa - A Visit to Remember”) is the result of the admiration that the businessman Alexandre Soares has for the humanitarian work that Roger Federer develops out of the tennis courts. The book was launched in an independent manner and 100% of the sales are in benefit of the athlete’s foundation.

MARTHA MEDEIROS

Brazilian Luxury: Exuberant nature and precious work

artha Medeiros is a passionate fashion designer that made handlace an essential material. She developed and improved her creative process through the years, since childhood in Alagoas – a state in Brazil Northeast. Back in the 60’s, she was encouraged by her grandmother to observe nature as a reference and a source of inspiration: “Look at the colors on the cliffs by the sea, from brown to terracota and orange. That’s fashion”, said while teaching her how to sew dresses for her dolls. She looked, listened and learned.

L W

ater on she managed to add sensibility to colors, shapes and textures as well as a “good nose” for business with an entrepreneurial spirit plus a talent to deal well with people. Before transforming her name to a fashion brand, she lead a prolific carreer in retail with Maison M. a shop that was a big success in Maceió, the capital of Alagoas, back in the 80’s and through the 90’s.

hen she became the designer for her own label, Ms. Medeiros accessed her longtime love affair with handmade lace – the traditional Brazilian handcraft produced mostly by poor women in the Northeast of Brazil – making it the main material for elaborate dresses and evening gowns. Brazilian “Renascença” lace – made exclusively for her by a group of more than 450 women artisans from tiny and distant villages – mixed with luxury materials, some the same used by parisian maisons de couture, gave the Martha Medeiros brand its uniqueness.

TALK Miami 47


PROFILE

M

artha maintains a close relationship with these lacemakers through the “Olhar do Sertão” Project , from the Institute Martha Medeiros. Her relationship with them is divided into two distinct parts: the professional, through paid work and goals which allows them to increase their financial gain according to productivity. The other is the social care in several áreas like education, health and financial independent.

T M N A

hanks to the great demand of the brand for handmade lace, Martha rescued this tradition that was destined to end and today these women see their lives transformed by the art of making lace.

artha arrived in São Paulo in 2009, with the opening of an exclusive boutique in the area of Jardins. Not much later her lace dresses could be seen at Bergodorf Goodman in New York, at Harrods in London and as part of a large lace exhibition in Calais - France. They began as well to be exported to numerous clients in America, U.K. and Middle East .

ow, besides ready to wear pieces, evening gowns and wedding dresses – a speciality of the brand with an entire atelier dedicated to their production which opened in São Paulo last year – Martha Medeiros also designs a line of home wear created exclusively for wedding parties, decorated with lace thread motifs. ccording to the designer, lace is the most refined Brazilian handcraft, made by women artisans who keep this precious ancestral knowledge in their very hands. “That’s true Brazilian luxury”, she declares.

TALK Miami 48


PROFILE

Developing Dreams

oft and feminine, lace is never far from the surface of women’s fashions. Lace production first boomed in Europe during the 1700s. Handcrafted needle-made lace was not only a labor-intensive effort, but also involved high amounts of personal skill and a personal touch by the artisan. That’s what makes it unique – laces threads are always different, like a signature. Some periods of history have been more lace obsessed than others, but its tradition as a cultural handicraft force made it fascinating and desirable through generations.

O

ther than appearing precious, lace expresses subtlety, femininity and is able to tell its own story! Both traditional and modern, demure and sexy, girlish and womanly. It’s no wonder it exists in wedding dress, an evening gown and lingerie. It is available in white, black and all colour shades and variations. Its possibilities are as simple as endless.

S

o the hand made process present in all Martha Medeiros brand’s areas is extremely detailed and requires a lot of work. The time necessary to make lace is of great relevance for each piece to be unique and tells its own story. A single wedding dress made of “Renascença” lace could take a whole year of collective work. The final result is truly precious far beyond any frill or trend. “It is truly about a life story and, by income, we realize dreams. We believe the future has an antique heart.” Martha Medeiros

he Design District is another force of Miami’s potential of becoming a fashion center. Last year the spot attracted fashion brands such as Hermès, Dior (its biggest store in the U.S.), Louis Vuitton, Lanvin, Marni, Marc Jacobs, Rick Owens, Cartier, Céline, Givenchy, Loewe and Tom Ford, among many others. For 2016, the Design District will welcome flagships for Isabel Marant, Saint Laurent, Rag & Bone and Tory Burch. In 2017, Alice & Olivia and Diane von Furstenberg also have plans to open up shop. “Those are indicative that Miami is considered a very important market,” says Craig Robins, CEO and President of Dacra, the company behind the development of Miami’s Design District. “Only a handful of cities in the world can be so successful so quickly,” adds Zach Winkler, a senior associate of CBRE Miami’s urban and high street

Winkler believes that Miami’s appeal to international retailers has joined the ranks of cities like New York and Los Angeles, especially for European and Latin American brands looking to enter the U.S. market. “It’s actually amazing that they’re considering Miami as their first stop now, even over a city like New York,” he says. “Miami is a true gateway city to the rest of the world.

ashion players from New York City have also migrated to Miami to continue their careers. One of them is Kelly Framel, also known as The Glamourai. She started splitting her time between the two cities by the end of 2014. Framel and her boyfriend are residents of Mid-beach, which she claims is another upcoming area for the fashion crowd. The neighborhood is already home to fashion-friendly hotels like the Faena, the Edition, the W, 1 Hotel and Soho House. Currently, Framel is working on a project in Miami that she still keeps as a secret, but explained why she made the big move: “There’s a scene bubbling up here that’s really palpable and that I haven’t seen in New York or LA in a long time,” says Framel. “It’s definitely in its nascency, the early days, but a scene is most special during that time. I don’t know anybody that’s not spending time in the city. My boyfriend and I joked that it’s the sixth borough — we see our New York friends more in Miami than we do in New York.”

TOP 10 BEST LUXURY CAR INTERIORS LONG CELEBRATED FOR THEIR DESIGNED EXTERIORS, THE BEST CARS ARE FINALLY GETTING THE INSIDES TO MATCH. LUXURY AUTOMAKERS ARE CREATING CAR INTERIORS THAT ARE MORE LUXURIOUS THAN EVER, AND THE EMPHASIS IS NOT JUST ON DRIVER COMFORT. THE ENTIRE VEHICLE IS NOW SEEN AS A LIVING SPACE WHERE PASSENGER COMFORT AND CONNECTIVITY, AS WELL AS SUPERIOR INTERIOR DESIGN, ARE JUST AS ESSENTIAL AS WHAT’S UNDER THE HOOD. HERE ARE OUR 10 FAVORITE INTERIORS: By Alice Morais

2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan The interior design of the new Mercedes Benz E-class sedan uses a wave form that links the instrument panel and the door panels to create an elegant cabin with a sporty touch. An ambient LED lighting array with 64 color options allows drivers to personalize the interior with touches of light. But the most innovative feature is the touch-sensitive controls on the steering wheel that allow the driver to control the entertainment system with a swipe of a finger. Courtesy Mercedes-Benz USA

2017 Bugatti Chiron With a 1500 horsepower, 261-miles-per-hour engine under the hood, the Bugatti Chiron surely attracts attention for its technical attributes, but the car’s interior is also very impressive. The defining design feature is an illuminated C-shaped light strip that extends from the dashboard to flow upward to the roof liner, continuing forward to the rearview mirror. The interior also blends leather and carbon fiber to imply both luxury and technical sophistication. Other design details include a very narrow center console with air-conditioning switches under glass hoods. TALK Miami 74

2017 Audi R8 V10 Plus Racecars aren’t comfy vehicles but their influence is present in the interior design of luxury sports cars. Just look to Audi’s 205-mileper-hour 2017 R8 V10 plus, whose steering wheel adopts technologies that include the pushbutton control ideas, with larger buttons for the most used start-stop and drive select functions and smaller buttons for the performance mode selector and sport exhaust.

2016 Porsche 911 R The new Porsche 911 R parlays the 911’s long history (the first was produced in 1964) into a new version, with a limited run of 991 vehicles, for 2017. The lightweight carbon fiber interior trim reflects the car’s overall emphasis on performance, as does the 14.1-inch steering wheel. And the seats combine carbon fiber backrests with houndstooth upholstery for a design detail that pays homage to the 911s of the 1960s. include a very narrow center console with air-conditioning switches under glass hoods.

2017 Rolls-Royce Black Badge The Rolls-Royce Black Badge offers an edgy design that would seduce Batman! The carbon fiber surfaces of the interior are interlaced with threads of aircraft aluminum and the black leather upholstery is mixed with cobalt blue. The exterior is black, of course, made all the more noticeable by a high-gloss black version of the Spirit of Ecstasy emblem on the hood. The Black Badge upgrade kit will be available in 2017.

Lamborghini Urus SUV Lamborghini’s long-awaited 600-horsepower Urus, arrives by 2018. Concept photos indicate the design may be as radical as the car is fast: The four-passenger interior is dominated by a futuristic open skeletal structure made of a new, Lamborghini-exclusive, carbon fiber material, with the seats only partially clad in leather. Except for the paddle shifters, all the operating functions are on the wheel or on the console.

2016 BMW 7 Series 750i xDrive The leather seats are super comfortable, with generous legroom (it’s BMW’s most spacious sedan) and deep-pile floor mat. For an extra bit of luxury, spring for the Executive Lounge Seating Package and choose the seat behind the front passenger— it reclines and has a footrest. Above, LED lights gently diffuse through the glass moon roof, creating the effect of a starlit sky. With all this, it’s clear why this sedan was named world luxury car of the year at 2016 New York International Auto Show.

2017 Volvo S90 Sedan Sit in the Volvo S90 sedan and you’ll feel like you’re set low and deep in the car—a deliberate design effect that keeps the displays like the vertical touch-screen in the center of the dashboard more at eye level. The interior draws heavily on Scandinavian influences with light colors and walnut trim. There is plenty of legroom in the rear and a scooped out headliner gives rear passengers additional headroom as well.

Bentley Bentayga SUV Picture yourself sitting on smooth, diamond-quilted leather seats while admiring the Mulliner Tourbillion clock by Breitling, machined in solid gold and set into the dashboard—a precious addition. Nothing else needs to be said.

2016 Holland & Holland Range Rover There’s no better example of a well-executed collaboration between carmakers and luxury brands than this design by Land Rover and Holland & Holland, a high-end British maker of shotguns. The interior of this limited-edition piece adds acanthus scroll designs, diamond stitching, and French walnut veneers that are signature hallmarks of Holland & Holland products.

Since the age 13, Amalie Hansen had been scouted to start a modeling career, but she was passionate about school and wanted to focus 100% on that. It was just after high school graduation she decided to take the offer and signed with an agency. Her current mother agency (MP Mega Miami) scouted her in Denmark last summer while Amalie was working at H&M. The scouter offered her a contract and in the blink of an eye, Amalie was on a plane on her way to Florida, where the agency is based. This all happened in July last year and since then she has been travelling and working non-stop. Height: 5’11” Waist: 24” Hips: 35” Shoes: 71/2 Eyes: Gray Blue Hair: Blonde
